SAN ANTONIO -- Police are searching for suspects after a homeless man was shot while sleeping on a bus bench on the Northeast Side.
The shooting happened around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. Investigators say a dark blue older model SUV pulled up near a bus stop in the 1100 block of Austin Highway and someone inside started shooting at a homeless man asleep on a bench there. The man was hit about 4 times. Police believe the shooter used a bb gun, since not all of the shots penetrated the man's skin.
The injured man walked about 100 yards to a self-storage business for help. He was taken to Northeast Baptist Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police said they are looking for at least two people in connection with the shooting.
